My child has flu like/cold symptoms ... Should they come to school?

Anyone who has flu-like or cold symptoms no matter how mild (a fever, loss of smell/taste, new muscle ache for no obvious reason, a new persistent cough, new and severe fatigue, sore throat, headache sinus pain, pain around the eyes, shortness of breath) should contact the Clinical Helpline by calling 01481 756938 or 01481 756969.

For those with a runny nose and no other symptoms, you need to consider the following:

  • History of travel - individual or any household member - in the past 14 days

  • Contact with a diagnosed case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days

  • Household members presenting any of the symptoms listed above

If a positive answer is given to any of the 3 questions above, the person should not attend school and should contact the helpline.

School Day

Formal registration and tutorial time begins at 8.30 am and it is imperative that students arrive beforehand, leaving enough time to start promptly.

Students will meet with their tutor for 20 minutes at the beginning of each school day. Tutor groups typically contain approximately 16 students and this quality time will enable students to work alongside each other following a tutorial programme.

Being a Rights Respecting School

The Guernsey Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre is a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. As part of this plan we are working towards recognition as a ‘Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK.

A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships, and our students are learning about their rights by putting them into practice every day.
